“Russians must respect our soldiers”: Finns about a mistake on a banner in Usinsk

Readers of the Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat commented on the situation with the error on the scandalous street congratulations on May 9, which appeared on the eve of the Komi Republic. Recall that in the city of Usinsk, a huge banner was hung on the wall of an apartment building, which instead of a Soviet soldier in the Arctic shows a Finnish fighter in Lapland.

The authorities have already acknowledged the mistake, and promised to punish those responsible.

Reader Comments:

That was right. It is good that Russia has learned to recognize the merits of Finnish soldiers!

This Finnish photo fits perfectly into the poster for Victory Day in Russia, as Finland won the battle against the Soviet Union, repelling a major offensive in 1944. In the end, there is nothing wrong with celebrating a common victory among neighbors: the Soviet Union crushed Germany and Finland rebuffed the Soviet Union. Both won. The goal of the Soviet Union was to conquer Finland both in the Winter War and in the continuation war [...] So the photograph on the poster was more than appropriate.

The Finns thank you for the recognition that our soldiers have received. But even in the East, it's time to focus on today instead of looking for joy in Victory Day.

They just don't have photos of their own deer soldiers.

"... the guilty are punished" So typical of Russia. I noticed that when something happens in Russia, the first thing is announced: "the guilty will be punished." [...] I wonder for such a "crime"?

They would have similar zeal to look for those responsible, for example, in illegal territorial seizures, or in the use of soldiers without identification marks, as well as the destruction of a civilian aircraft, political murders, pressure on journalists, money laundering, etc.

This is a tribute to the Finnish soldier who fought for freedom and democracy.

Glory to the Finnish army!

The people of Finland thank you for this recognition.

Yes, Russians must respect Finnish soldiers.

There is nothing wrong with this poster and text. Defenders of Finnish independence deserve all respect on both sides of the border. I do not understand what is now so upset Russia.

Also, a number of commentators expressed the opinion that some “Finnish compatriots” in Komi may be involved in the incident.

    More and more I am convinced that, wherever a person lives, to what views you do not take yourself, they are all the same)) They dance and rejoice. The stupidity of the man who came up with this poster. But focusing on remember how they themselves placed the Russian Submarines on NATO brochures, passing them off as their own))

    Alas, this only indicates the level of education.
    If the student did - Yakut, or Tajik, then everything can be reaped ...

    A couple of weeks ago on the internet, the poster was discussed with a similar mistake - half of the soldiers were there with an oriental squint ... What do you think, who did it?

    After studying the declassified materials and verifying the actions of the Finnish invaders and their accomplices against the peaceful Soviet population, the investigators will give an appropriate legal assessment.
    "Every act based on criminal ideas of racial superiority and misanthropy, even after decades, should not remain unpunished. Such crimes have no statute of limitations," the RF IC stressed.

    Respect the Finnish soldiers who carried out criminal orders to destroy the unarmed, civilian population? This was or not this - it does not matter. The indelible stain of shame, which the Finns as a nation will deny to the last, praise these "heroes" - eloquently testifies that this is the norm for them, which, apparently, we will have to heal better. So let them consider the publication of documentary evidence of the "exploits" of Finnish "heroes" as a medicine, humanitarian aid. They didn’t want to talk about too many things before, because they seem to be neighbors, but if not in the horse feed ...

    “Russians must respect our soldiers”: Finns about a mistake on a banner in Usinsk

    laughing And those Finns fool And those, especially those who thought of hanging it on a banner. By the way, I absolutely printed about it on VO. What else and not so see. In an article about a calendar with children in the role of warring soldiers. And he suggested in that comment - before it’s too late, create a single center for coordination of any products for Victory Day. That there was no such dirty trick. Anyway. There will be something to talk about.

    It is not hard to guess that the author of the poster is an apolitical girl, a Photoshop girl. This is a direct result of the fact that our government, instead of educating children, provides them with "educational services." Who are the teachers? Scoundrels - graduates of the 90s.

      This is a direct consequence of the fact that they take power according to the doom, and not according to the mind. Therefore, a lot, including this photo, goes through the fifth point, and not in the way the saddest thing is that the Kremlin does not draw conclusions and is not going to put things in order.

    But ask the poster author questions:
    1. Who recommended and for what purpose (ordered, insisted, asked) to make such.
    2. Who allowed (ordered, strongly recommended) to hang such a house, for a wide overview.
    3. Who paid for this provocation, how, how much and when? The sources must be found.

    This is all the cost of the absence in the Russian Federation, clearly defined and steadily (in word and deed!) Of the constitutional ONE ideology ( with clear and understandable realistic goals and objectives, progressive and generally acceptable, supported by the majority of the population!) state building of the country and the foundations of life in Russian society!

    As long as the Russian State remains so ideologically "restless" and "non-consensual" in the principles of the social structure of society, there is nothing to expect a decrease in "annoying (not only" poster "!) Misunderstandings" - they will only multiply (and the enemy does not sleep! ), alas! request

      In principle, I agree with you, though with one BUT - in the Russian Federation there is an ideology. This is the statement of Borka the drunkard - "ENRICH !!!" (and there was also "Take sovereignty as you want!" - a crime of the LEADER OF THE COUNTRY !!!)
      ...... this is how we live with this slogan-ideology .... and the current leadership is not in a hurry to declare this ideology CRIMINAL, because it (namely THIS ideology) gives the right to BE ENRICHED (and not to earn money for the good of all people) all sorts of bastards and criminals, but not honest citizens.

        hi Well, Comrade A.Lex, "getting rich in any way" is a non-progressive, destructive, quasi "ideology" of a marginal (even if it pretentiously calls itself "elite") minority, parasitically parasitizing on the labor and natural resources of the Russian Federation!
        Contributing only to the ruin and unconditional weakening of Russia, the impoverishment and extinction of the population!
        And therefore, it is unacceptable for the sane working majority (although we all see that purposeful mass work to profanate education and stupidity, marginalization of the working masses is being carried out throughout the post-Soviet space, since Gorbachev's times and has already given-gives a considerable "harvest" of outright maidauns, which will be easy to manipulate by any "impudent, greedy"! request) Russian society!

    For the first time, or what? Either instead of 34, the tiger will be painted on greeting cards for veterans, then Me instead of Yak. Business something. When the ideology of bablontius changed, then off and on went insanity.
